Biographical notes:

Roger de Montebello is a French-American painter who was born in Paris in 1964. After studying the fundamentals of drawing and painting at the Facultad de Bellas Artes in Seville (1984-1985), he continued his artistic education (art history, philosophy and painting) at Harvard University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1988. Montebello's first exhibition was in Paris in 1992. That same year he set up his atelier in Venice, where he continues to live and work. The year 2011 saw him participate in the Venice Art Biennale with an exhibition called Montebello-Megachromia. After a series of personal shows, mostly in Paris and London, in 2017 the Museo Correr in Venice dedicated to him a solo exhibition, curated by Jean Clair and Gabriella Belli. In 2021 the Espace Muraille gallery, in Geneva, exhibited his "Porte delle Terese".
